Does Johnny Alpha exist in 15mm or is there a figure near enough to be converted without it being too much of a faff?
…not to mention the other characters – Wulf, Durham Red etc.

I'm afraid to ask who Johnny Alopha is, and Strontium Dog.

He's a character from 2000AD comic book, a Strontium Dog being a mutant bounty hunter, as is Durham Red, a female mutant with vampire tendencies. Wulf is Johnny's partner. Worth checking out the back catalog & the recent fan film on you tube,
Cheers,
Wilf

PS cheers boggler, our replies overlapped!

That's too cool!

The idea of a hero with daddy (identity) issues is entertaining too, in a dark comedy sort of way:

"Following an atomic war in the mid-22nd century, Johnny Kreelman was exposed to Strontium 90 radiation while still in his mother's womb. His father, Nelson Bunker Kreelman, was a politician with strong anti-mutant policies and was disgusted at having a mutant for a son and hid Johnny from the public until his early teens."

PS. It should come with a warning like this, but for radioactive material:

There must be some sort of adventurer from Alternative Armies' Laserburn range that fits the bill.

That was my first thought and there are a couple that are close but not quite close enough.

Odd looking helmet:

Definitely a pulpy-Judge-Dredd-ish tone to the whole concept.

I liked the fan film, thanks!

Loved this strip, so will definitely be keeping an eye on this thread.

As far as the helmet looking odd, it's 70s sci-fi. Has to be forgiven for that.

On a slightly related note, does anyone know whatever happened to Simon Harrison, his art on the 'Feral' storyline was astounding.

Definitely a pulpy-Judge-Dredd-ish tone to the whole concept.

Both Dredd and Johnny Alpha were originally created by John Wagner & Carlos Ezquerra – legends both!

The helmet contains a video camera and recorder. In the fan film Johnny hands over a video slug of what has happened to the police officer as evidence in claiming the bounty.

Ah, another classic Rogue Trader inspiration. Too bad so much of this earlier inspiration got left behind.

Best I can come up with for Johnny is doing a head-swap on a Laserburn Sentinel Law officer for an open face helmet of some description and bulk up with a bit of GS. Trim the badge, smooth the shoulder pads off with some more GS – knees are a bit of pain since Johnny doesn't have knee pads! So either ignore or try and trim down.
